Venetian Painter, The Mystic Marriage of St. Catherine of Alexandria

Oil on panel, 35 x 27 in. (90x68 cm.)
In the Albani Diocesan Museum, Urbino.
Deposito Galleria Nazionale delle Marche, Urbino.

The museum label calls this painting "Madonna and Child with SS. John the Baptist, Catherine, and Anthony Abbot" but this is clearly a Mystic Marriage painting. Note the ring that the Child is placing on Catherine's finger. Anthony is identified by his Antonine habit and the cross at the top of his staff, a variant of the tau-top staff; John, by the animal skin, long cross, and lamb; Catherine, by the wheel beneath her left hand.
